They work with the relevant regulatory authorities to ensure there is a level playing field for our Members in matters relating to Security Licensing, they work with the relevant Skills Service Organisation and the TAFE’s to ensure Apprentices are taught the skills needed by the modern locksmith, and they work with the industry to initiate research and development, helping to shape the future of our trade.
SCEC Approved Locksmiths maintain mechanical and digital combination locks fitted to SCEC approved containers (listed in the SEEPL). SCEC also recommends approved locksmiths are used to install locks and associated hardware in PSPF Security Zones 4 and 5.
Approval of applicants to the scheme is dependent on the person meeting the criteria and being assessed as a fit and proper person. SCEC Approved Locksmiths are required to renew their approval every four years.
Please note that under the current policy, SCEC Approved Locksmiths are not security cleared by SCEC . Agencies must confirm that they are appropriately cleared to work in/on the designated area and hardware/container(s) or appropriately escorted in line with the requirements of the PSPF.
The scheme is a whole-of-government mandated arrangement for procuring ICT goods and services.
